Day 4 Sneak Peek for CAS-ual Fridays

It is Thursday, one more day until the weekend begins!! Yeah!! (Weekends are what I live for these days!!)

Once again I am here with a sneak peak for CAS-ual Fridays new stamp and die release. Just two more days until the goodies go live in the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps store!!

Today I am sharing a project that I created with the new "Bravo" stamp set. There is a "Bravo" Fri-Die too!!

What I love about this stamp set is that you can use this for a bunch of different celebrations-retirement, a new job, graduations-the possibilities are endless!!

I chose to make a graduation card for my niece who will be graduating from college in a few weeks.

I started the card by cutting down a piece of white card stock into a 5 1/4" by 4" piece. I then stamped the "applause" sentiment in blue-violet from the new "Bravo" stamp set.  Next, I used the tiny star from the "Sassy Smiles" set and stamped some stars around the panel in a random fashion. I mounted the white panel onto a blue card base and set aside. I used Blue Bayou Stickles over the stars and inside the dots on the sentiment to give the card a little sparkle.

I used a punch to punch a circle and created a diamond with a ruler to create a graduation hat.

I then used some black floss to make a tassel for the hat. I punched a hole in the top of the graduation cap, insert the tassel and covered the hole up with a black enamel dot. I adhered the bottom of the hat to the card and then used foam adhesive under the top of the hat for some emphasis.

Since the colors of her school are blue and orange, I stamped another sentiment from the "Bravo" set in orange on a strip of white card stock. I adhered it above the blue sentiment.

To round everything out, I adhered some white sequins and orange stars that I die cut using the "Fun-Fetti" fri-dies randomly down the card at an angle.

Since I work in a High school, I will be needing a TON of graduation cards and will be utilizing the "Bravo" set again and again.
